2015 Scion FR-S vs. 2015 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Scion FR-S offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Civic with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Scion FR-S, drivers may find the Honda Civic a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Scion FR-S, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Scion FR-S is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Civic. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Scion FR-S will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Honda Civic.

Dimensions
The Scion FR-S is a little wider than the Honda Civic, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Scion FR-S, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Civic.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Scion FR-S transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Civic.

Handling
The Scion FR-S has about the same turning radius as the Honda Civic, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Scion FR-S has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Civic. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Scion FR-S has less seating than the Honda Civic, making the Honda Civic the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Scion FR-S has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Civic, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Scion FR-S comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic.
